Until I hear the other versions, I only recommend the pro if it still can be ordered somehow. I have no idea what they sound like.

 

If your model has RE-400 type neutral bass, it is probably the Pro.

 

Saw anything interesting at CES? How is the B3 Pro versus the KC06? If only the Pro version were readily available, but I'm a bit hesitant about the flat ribbon cable.

Mine are in transit. Should be in San Francisco by Wednesday? The holidays will slow down mail , but I've got the B3, Sony H1, and HiFiMan HM601 in transit. I gotta learn patience.

I was just at Hua Qiang Bei Lu (aka SEG Plaza, aka SEG Electronics Market) in Shenzhen this afternoon. For those of you who don't know, it's Disney Land for gadgets/electronics.  Here's a link to give you background.  You can also search YouTube for videos on this place.  

 

Anyway, I went into at least a dozen shops selling the Xiaomi Pistons . . . and I did not come across a single authentic set.  Beware when buying these on taobao.

No need for taobao. This is where you can buy them in confidence of authenticity and tracking number provided. Use it. Don't worry. Be happy.

You can buy it directly from Xiaomi on Taobao.

Meng. We're talking Shenzhen here. Fakes abound over there.

The Havi B3 is incredibly confusing, because they tuned it 3 different ways already.

 

"Pro version" - Available before January upon request. Flat, detailed, crystal freaking clear and well extended, regular natural mids, RE-400 type bass.

 

"Enhanced version" - Available before Jan. Colored, big bass version. Boosted bass and mids. Less treble, less transparent.

 

"IE80/TF10, whatever they are calling it now version" - Either its the enhanced version, or a completely new tuning.

 

Until I hear the other versions, I only recommend the pro if it still can be ordered somehow. I have no idea what they sound like.

 

If your model has RE-400 type neutral bass, it is probably the Pro.

I'm still not sure what version I've got of the B3's and I've never heard the RE-400's. I actually think my pair match the description of the Pro BUT I found the subbass to be very good although they're not at all bassy as a whole.  

 

On this song for example I can really feel the subbass rumble sometimes although there's no midbass hump that is usual on many other IEM's:

Everything always works backwards with Chinese companies. The new products first pop up on tmall and taobao and only after a couple of months on their official site.

Great thread! Ordered the Ostry KC06 on ebay. "Do not need burn" was a selling point I couldn't resist. :smile_phones:

Those look really nice. Did anyone here try them yet and could share some impressions?

I did. They are a very bright, clear IEM with not much bass.

Of course you did wink.gif

Doesn't sound like my preferences. I'll wait for impressions to start coming on the ax35 instead.
